Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service Title: Interstate Movement of Certain Tortoises. OMB Control Number: 0579–0156. Summary of Collection: The Animal Health Protection Act (AHPA) of 2002 is the primary Federal law governing the protection of animal health. The law gives the Secretary of Agriculture broad authority to prevent, control, and eliminate domestic diseases such as tuberculosis, as well as to take actions to prevent and to manage exotic diseases such as heartwater disease. The regulations in 9 CFR part 93 prohibit the importation of the leopard tortoise, the African spurred tortoise, and the Bell’s hingeback tortoise to prevent the introduction and spread of exotic ticks known to be vectors of heartwater disease, an acute, infectious disease of cattle and other ruminants. The regulations in 9 CFR part 74 prohibit the interstate movement of those tortoises that are already in the United States unless the tortoises are accompanied by a health certificate or certificate of veterinary inspection. Need and Use of the Information: APHIS will collect information to ensure that the interstate movement of these leopard, African spurred, and Bell’s hingeback tortoises poses no risk of spreading exotic ticks within the United States. Owners and veterinarians are required to provide the following information to Federal or accredited veterinarians for completion of the health certificate: name, address, and telephone number of the owner; information identifying the animal such as collar or tattoo number; breed; age; sex; color; distinctive marks; vaccination history; and certifications from both the owner and the veterinarian that all information is true and accurate. The collected information is used for the purposes of identifying each specific tortoise and documenting the State of its health so that the animals can be transported across State and national boundaries. If the information is not collected APHIS would be forced to continue their complete ban on the interstate movement of leopard, African PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 spurred, and Bell’s hingeback tortoises, a situation that could prove economically disastrous for a number of U.S. tortoises breeders. Description of Respondents: Individuals or households; Business or other for-profit. Number of Respondents: 50. Frequency of Responses: Reporting: On occasion. Total Burden Hours: 500.
